Columbine Memorial

By  | 

The parents of a girl killed in the Columbine High School massacre are selling gold lapel pins to raise money for a memorial honoring those who died.

Don and Dee Fleming are selling the pins for $13. They're about the size of a nickel and feature a columbine flower surrounded by the words "Columbine Memorial." About 500 pins have been sold so far.

The Flemings are the parents of Kelly Fleming, who died in the 1999 attacks.

After six years of fundraising for the $1.5 million memorial, about 530,000 dollars is still needed.

A groundbreaking at Clement Park next to the high school is scheduled for the spring, with the memorial scheduled to be finished in about six months.
